. >> we arare back with our roundtable. this week, doug fruling execututive editor of "the washington business journal," and per morici frfrom the university o of maryryland s school of busineness. peter is already laughing at me. >> i am laugng at the debate we had. onone wa as boringng as an accountant. joe bididen proved to us why he cannot be president of the united states. the ceo has to be able to listen. he did not let that poor guy get fiveve wor out of his mouth without interrupting. >> he w was very lively doug fruehling. he did interrupt far t often been bent onon the other hand, the previous debat eveveryone complained was n interrupted enough. i liked the foformat of both. i cannnnot tell you how many times i go out and talk to voters and i hear them say i wish they would talk more specifics about the issues. wewe the media do not alwayays cover it. i like the debate because they have more time to really go onn at length. that was bororing the fit time around. i want to gett doug's response. >> it was the vicpresidential debate and it should have been feisty and they shou
it started about 25 minutes ago. our hurricane sandy coverage begins with chief meteorologist doug kammerer, who has been tracking the storm throughout the day. doug? >> yeah, watching this storm out there right now, you can see where this is. right now, down through portions of cape may county, new jersey, that's where it's coming ashore right now. it was moving extremely fast, at 28 miles an hour. but looking at some of the latest imagery here, it looks like it's really starting to slow down. waiting to see what's going on. you can notice very dry air wrapping around the center. and the rain just cutting off. right now, right around the philadelphia area. they're no longer seeing the heavy rain. we, however, are continuing to see the heavy rain. the latest advisory as of 5:00, had winds of 90 miles an hour. a very strong category 1 storm. the pressure down to 940 millibars. this storm has now set all-time low pressure records for atlanticcity, for trenton, new jersey and for philadelphia. all-time lowest pressure ever recorded. and that goes back to the super storm of '93. even b
declared across our entire area. doug kammerer right now is here to explain why we should keep a close eye on this one. >> the reason for this, jim, is not because we have a hurricane to the south. it's because what's going to be happening after. this right now, it says it's a hurricane, but most likely it's a tropical storm. but do not let that fool. the 8:00 advisory, i bet it will come out as tropical storm sandy, but it doesn't matter, don't let a weakening storm now fool you later. because this storm is going to continue to make its way up the coast. right now has winds of 57 miles an hour. that was the latest as of the 5:00 advisory from the national hurricane center, moving to the north at 7 miles per hour. it is expected to become a tropical storm most likely around 00, 11:00 advisory. the track is what you want to focus on here. the cone of uncertainty takes it anywhere from boston, to the richmond area and anywhere in between is going to see very strong winds. not going to be the rain, most likely not the flooding in our region, it will be the winds. let's take a look
coverage begins with chief meteorologist doug kammerer. this storm seems to be right on schedule. >> it really does. it is now moving close to 30 miles an hour. it has made a beeline for the jersey coast. it is now just to the north and coming ashore. you can see what's going on. a ton of rain on the west side of the storm. but notice, the strongest side, normally the northeast corner here, that's where you see the strongest winds, 84-mile-an-hour wind gusts in long island. notice the rain here, really cutting off on the back side, as it makes its way in. we'll continue to see rain here, though, as we continue to be on the southwest side of the storm. here's atlantic city. here's the ey coming onshower right now. atlantic city, probably seeing the strongest winds they have seen in years. maybe even decades right now. potentially 90, 100-mile-an-hour winds with this storm. you can see the outer eye wall which is right here through cape may county, new jersey, along the delaware bay. we're watching this rig around rehoboth beach. they're probably seeing very strong winds out of the
the shoreline, too. we begin with storm team 4 chief meteorologist doug kammerer with new information about sandy's track and the time line for potentially dangerous conditions here. doug? >> i think we're finally starting to understand just how big this storm is going to be and just how devastating it could potentially be. we've been talking about it for over a week now, making its way very close to our region. you can see where it is right now, and this is the interesting thing here. it is still moving out to sea, northeast right now at about 15 miles per hour, but you can see where the rain is lining up, and we are starting to see rain now across our region. we've also started to see -- rather tropical storm-force gusts of 30 to 40 miles an hour in parts of the area. again, tropical storm-force winds of 39 miles an hour or higher and we've seen those down toward the shore. now, current location, well down to the south and east of us, but what we're seeing is winds of 75 miles an hour close to the center here and the pressure now down to 952 millibars. that's a very strong storm. that is
today. but clouds are moving in now. we could see some changes. chief meteorologist doug kammerer is outside enjoying the last little bits of this day. doug? >> a little bit on the breezy side. the rain is now moving in. some of that rain could be rather heavy as we move into the overnight hours. let's look outside right now, 68 degrees. winds gusting to over 20 miles an hour in parts of the region. we are seeing temperatures that are starting to fall a little. they're not going to fall much. 70 in leesburg, down to the south fredericksburg coming in at 71 degrees. that's where the rain is now. down around stafford county, around the fredericksburg area, fauquier county and warrenton, that's the first batch of rain. there's aot more rain coming back to the west. and down to the south in the carolinas, that also making its way our way up i-95. we'll talk more about that, and when you may need these tomorrow, too. >>> coming up, is it a way to fight crime or a violation of privacy. the controversy over recording conversations on public buses. >>> i'm jackie bensen on wisconsin avenu
and are they gone for good? so let's get to our mt. who is tracking everything you need to see. doug, what's the word? >> at one point tornado warnings issued north and east of baltimore city. but everything is disapating. we will be in fine shape not only for tonight but for many days in a row. over in clarksville and burton'sville, very heavy rainfall amounts. things are quieting down. when you get up in the morning there will be a whole different weather pattern. 43 to 53, a chilly start. the seven-day outlook that's coming up too in just a minute. >> we'll get back to you in a bit. but first -- >> a student was severely beaten following a maryland victory over duke. but tonight one of the officers is acquitted while the other is convicted on just one charge. richard reeve is outside the prince george's county courthouse. tell us about it >> and alison, long and difficult deliberations for a while. it didn't appear there would be a verdict at all. but one officer found guilty, the other not guilty. >> a relieved and happy john mckena left the prin

we can expect. doug? >> we can expect our days to get better. today, we saw a little bit of sunshine and the clouds rolled back in. sandy still around. rotating around our region, just up to the north and west of us, making its way to the north and east. it will bring a slight chance of a sprinkle or shower. what about halloween? your trick or treating forecast tonight? temperatures, 46 to 50 degrees. it will be a little on the chilly side. so just know that as you send the kids out for kanldz yesterday. we'll be right back. >>> thank you, doug. a man is dead after an accident on the outer loop of the beltway. 44-year-old qualmy abon was killed in the crash about 5:15 a.m. investigators say his car was rear ended by a car and hit by a truck. the cause is still under vestigation. nobody else was hurt. >>> grief counselors were called in at seneca valley high school after a 15-year-old student was hit and killed on her way to school. police say christina morris-ward was killed while trying to cross germantown road just before 7:00 this morning. pat collins is at the scene with reaction
. we begin with storm team 4 chief meteorologist doug kammerer with the latestn sandy's track. >> right now sandy just off the coast of florida. you can see it right there on the satellite picture here. the hurricane making its way up towards the north. still a hurricane at this hour. not a very well-defined hurricane but once again, wr watching this thing very, very closely and it's making its way up the coast. you can see what we have going on as far as north carolina already seeing some heavy rain making its way in there. the winds starting to gust across that region, and now we're seeing the cloud cover. if were you out earlier you could look up and actually start to see the clouds in sandy as its making it's way up north. the brand new track just in from the national hurricane center. winds, 75 miles an hour moving to the northeast, 13 miles an hour, deepening. as we move through the next day or two it's moving out and as we've been talking about and forecasting this over a week now, move back into the mid-atlantic states, and you notice we are tuesday at 3:00 right on top of us. t
day long. >> hey, doug, good evening. our conditions here are certainly improving in terms of the wind and rain, unfortunately the surf is still very, very high. it doesn't take much to have one of these waves just roll up the beach, push a little over the debris further than what we have seen. we are just past high tide now. but i will tell you, the resort we are staying at doesn't anticipate this kind of wave action. even though the storm is over two miles away, we are still getting huge waves. those waves will get bigger and impact larger areas. these are of historic proportions. almost hard it graps meet logically from what we saw five days ago to now what has been pretty much the story. the models have been sticking with this and sticking with it. as far as me, i'm heading up to new york city with the models kind of honing in on that area and certainly the potential to stop the city that never sleeps. that is something that i will be covering for the weather channel come tomorrow night. back to you. >> and new york city, definitely one of the places that could be hardest hit as th

to be doing, meteorologist doug kammerer and myself a live web chat until 7:00. go to nbcwashington.com, and you'll be able to get in and ask us all the questions you want. 71 degrees our current temperature with a northeast wind at 6 miles per hour. there's our temperatures across the area right now. we finally got rid of the clouds. it's been a mild day for us. your evening forecast, again, partly cloudy. nice and mild. 60 to # 66 degrees. tomorrow morning, 51 to 59. tomorrow afternoon, we're back up to 71. so tomorrow's going to look and feel a lot like today. you can see the four-day forecast for sunday and monday, the impact of sandy. again, probably the worst on monday going into tuesday. but again, its effects already felt late sunday. we've got a live web chat coming up in a couple of minutes. i'll tell you about our storm team 4 weather app, what you have to do to get it. >> busy days ahead. >>> coming up, we'll show you strangers jumping in to save the life of a woman in distress at a gas station. >>> and microsoft's big announcement today that could change your home pewte
in the rose garden yet and no one has told him, chris. doug is absolutely right. he's not good on his feet. his last few interviews have been aces a ters. he was terrible with david gregory. when paul ryan sat down with chris wallace, he was hammered on the absence of details in their plans. romney couldn't even handle bret bear from fox. they can't even go to fox when they go on fox nobody blows fox who is a republican except these two guys. so i think it's the prevent defense except he's not sitting on a lead. but he's behind in most of the swing states. he's behind in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, nevada. you know, i'm not sure this is so safe, but it's probably the safest course for him. >> well, i think bret bear is pretty good in that interview. one reason romney might steer clear of sit-down interviews, he's been barraged with questions about senate candidate richard mourdock. take a look. >> governor, do you wish mourdock would pull that ad? >> which way are we going? >> governor, do you disavow mourdock's comments on the rape? >> thank you. >> governor, do you disavow murdoch's comments
of aspartame. erica edwards, nbc news. >>> doug joins us now. he has our attention. four or five days out from sandy. >> one thing we want to make sure everybody knows right now, we're still four or five days out. there's still a lot of uncertainty here. the models are coming into better agreement, we've been talking about this storm for the last three or four days, that this will have an impact on the east coast and maybe a major impact even here in the d.c. metro area and portions of our region. but what's happening outside today, we've seen a fantastic, glorious afternoon, almost summer-like. as a matter of fact, we have tied a record today. the record high, 84 degrees. that's where we were just an hour or two ago. right now we're sitting at 82 degrees under partly cloudy skies. winds out of the north about 6 miles an hour. as far as the temperatures around the reason, very warm. it is going to continue to be a very nice, very pleasant, a very warm evening. 81 in culpepper, 82 in fredericksburg, 69 and east wind coming off the chesapeake there. a big difference here, 13-degree difference be

a gorgeous day out there. tough to come back indoors. >> and doug just came in. >> were you outside on the grass? >> i was outside, soaking it all in. and then they said, you've got to come in and work. you've got to do -- >> the trees just suddenly went -- they exploded in the last 36 hours. >> absolutely beautiful. i've got fantastic pictures to show you, too. it was gorgeous, gorgeous weekend. a little on the cool side. temperatures in the 60s. but wow, was it nice with all that sunshine. especially yesterday. today, a repeat. plenty of sunshine. but a little bit warmer. highs now in the low 70s across the area. and like i said, i've got great pictures to show you. first off, how about chantilly, where these pictures were taken. there's the beautiful red colors for you. veronica out and about earlier this weekend, take a look at this picture. this down around the quantico area. simply gorgeous. we are really seeing some beautiful color this year. as a result of a little bit of dry weather, that dry weather helping to bring out those fall colors we've seen so often. here's another
' doug luzader watched sandy slam into rewhoboth beach. >> he joins us live with a look at the conditions there. good morning, doug, how's it going this morning? >>reporter: well, not exactly drenched and not really all that windy at the moment. it's certainly a lot better than we've seen. and you see cleanup vehicles out here, some people are kind of going about their business. that's good news. the one sure sign i guess that the hurricane is over, take a look out there, there are actually surfers in the water here as they take advantage of what still remains to be some pretty big waves here. obviously not the kind of wave action we saw yesterday and not the kind of tidal surge that we saw yesterday. all in all it seems like this part of delaware did okay. we'll have to see as the sun continues to rise and we spend some more time out on the streets to see if in fact things are getting back to normal. but it's a much different story when you head farther to the north, atlantic city and then, of course, new york city dealing with that 13-foot tidal surge. i mean, that's going to be an iss
's where we find a reporter live. doug, good morning. >> reporter: good morning guys. and look, look at this water that's just rushing into the board walk here, i walk out on to the beach, gives you an idea of just the force of this, you see this erosion sense here, look, its just been torn apart, this part of its just been mingled. that's tons of beach erosion all over the place. this is a real concern all up and downtown coast here. this area has been verdict evacuated, mandatory evacuation near the coast. this may be 50,000 people. once you start getting to those massive population centers north of here, we're talking obviously dc, but also when you get up to philadelphia and new york city, new england area, boston, all the sudden it gets very difficult to move those people out of harm's way quickly enough. now the wind speeds here are not terrible, maybe in the 15 to 20-mile an hour range, 25 miles an hour, something like that. once you get offshore, you're talking more like 40, 50 miles an hour. it's going to get worse through the course of the day. combining with high tides bec
heat on, doug hill is here to tell you whether you leave it for the rest of the week. >> the cardinals turned the heat up on the national spirit a full house and a beautiful day, but the defending world champions are closer to the national league championship. we'll take you to the ballpark to hear from ups let me tell you how i will create 12 million jobs when president obama couldn't. first my energy independence policy means more than three million new jobs. many of them in manufacturing. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates seven million more. and expanding trade, cracking down on china d improvingng job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. >> 7 is on your side tonight with a granola bar recall. the organic theater chip granola bars are being recalled because of possible some a lot contamination in that in a better. the granola bars have a sell date of november 1, 2012. there have not been reports of illness from these bars. >> the economy is not keeping peopl

the gravesite of president kennedy. >> plus, doug hill will tell us what we can expect to rest of weekend and tomorrow. >> the yankees trying to stay alive against the tigers and the american league championship series. most of the talk is about the giants'-redskins on sunday. scott pelley: "you made on yourt paid 14% in federal taxes, is that fair to the guy higher rate than you did? romney: "yeah, encourage economic growth." us. is that the way to grow america? this messa. >> a member of the virginia guard no longer faces a of committing a terror attack, instead paying a $15 fine. was arrested august 20 near a of westford the schools training rifle. he pled no contest to public intoxication and willful of the school. in exchange, the felony terror dropped.s >> a special tribute today to kennedy. john f. a contingent of green berets wreath on his cemetery. his grave at arlington national cemetery. afterwards, a special forces capability demonstration was myer.t fort >> good day for that, beautiful day. >> the clouds are moving quickly, a little bit of rain, coming into the viewing area r

[ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. marywe invest in th

of power issues. now let's go to doug for the latest on our cool night ahead. >> it's going to be a cool night ahead and on the chilly side. sandy continues to just spinel around our region. you can notice the clouds continuing to make their way in. that's going to be the case during the day tomorrow. as you look, a little on the creepy said the next few hours. we'll be talking about our numbers, down to 45 to 50 degrees, breezy and cool. make sure you're ready to go out and prepared to that with a jacket at least as you head on out tonight. >> thank you, doug. >> coming up next, the latest on a series of pipe bombs found in virginia. >>> homemade [ earnest ] out of the blue one day, we were told to build a 30-foot stage. gathered the guys and we built that 30-foot stage, not knowing what it was for. just days later, all three shifts were told to assemble in the warehouse. a group of people walked out on that stage and told us that the plant is now closed and all of you are fired... i looked both ways, i looked at the crowd, and...we all just lost our jobs. we don't have an income. mitt
of the streets impassable. storm team 4 doug kammerer has a look at how this storm is still around. >> it is around and it is a storm we've been about for more than a week and a half. making its way onshore as it went way out to sea and then right back in toward our region. and you can still see the spin in the atmosphere just particular to spin around with these rain showers moving through and the snow back toward the west. let's take a look and show you how this storm developed and what we saw. high wind gusts, upwards of 60 miles an hour. 63 in newington. fairfax at 61 miles an hour. same thing in reagan national. 60 miles an hour. both reston and winchester. it was the rain and it was the wind. how much rain did we see? many areas over four to five inches of rachbl dentsville, maryland, almost six inches. bowie, maryland, almost seven inches. everybody saw the rain. everybody saw the wind and now we're seeing the cold air wrapping in behind this system. you see all the snow back toward the west. we're going to continue to see that snow back toward the west in through garrett co

night. doug luzader has more. >> reporter: it may have had all the appearances of a high dollar fundraiser, but it's not often you see both mitt romney and the president working over the same room or saying things like this -- >> i had a lot more energy in our second debate. i was really rested after the long nap i had in the first debate. >> i've already seen early reports from tonight's dinner. headline, obama embraced by catholics. romney dines with rich people. >> reporter: all of this to raise about $5 million for catholic charities. the dinner has become an election year tradition and the two headliners really delivered, setting aside the noise of hundreds of millions of dollars of largely negative ads that are barraging swing states now. lighter moments can play big. president obama also sought out young voters with an appearance on john stewart's daily show yesterday, and ann romney courted women voters on "the view." last night's brief moments of peace may have been brokered by cardinal timothy dolan, they'll are be short lived. monday's debate won't be so pleasant. >>
the u.s. ambassador there. doug luzader is live. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the state department dropped something of a bombshell saying that they never thought that this attack on the u.s. consulate was part of a spontaneous protest. with the investigation into what happened at this compound in libya underway, there is now a clear rift between president obama and the u.s. state department. while many blamed the protests and discounted the idea that terrorists killed chris stevens, it's unclear what she was basing that on. the u.s. state department, that was not them. according to one official, that was not our conclusion. this as congress gets ready for some explosive hearings. >> what the state department bureaucracy distances itself from the liberal white house, you know the white house has a big problem. >> reporter: the white house denies there was a coverup. beyond that, more questions about security at the u.s. compound with documents showing well over 200 security-related incidents in the past 14 months. they will ask why the state department ignored some signs
in the cross hairs for the candidates. fox's doug luzader has the latest now from the campaign trail >> reporter: certainly seen this race tighten up considerably over just the past month. this is the average of polls. there's not much space between governor romney and president obama. romney has widened his lead a bit since yesterday and it has the president running to catch up. nothing matches the campaign tools a president has, air force one rolling up to a rally. later, the president running to the podium. >> are you fired up?

is tightening. as fox's doug luzader tells us, with four weeks to go before the election, both are coming out swunging on the campaign trail. >> reporter: 47 to 47, the race is locked up right now, at least according to gallup. the landscape is changing quickly. both campaigns are trying to take advantage. mitt romney may have had more spring in his step yesterday as he spoke to the virginia military institute. he went after what has been president obama's strong suit in many polls, foreign policy. and he spoke about last month's attack on the u.s. consulate in libya in a world he says is now more dangerous. >> this latest assault can be blamed on a video insulting islam, despite the administration's attempts to convince us of that for so long. no, the administration has conceded these were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> reporter: the president spent much of his day preaching to the converted at california fundraisers. it helped pad his campaign coffers. he reminded his faithful that the race is extremely tight and right around the corner. >> so i need you in this election, the next 29
